Roger - glad to see this topic on the mailing lists.
Now while I understand the need to gather requirements I see little
benefit in doing that in isolation. Let's be clear - there are not that
many good candidates to choose from. Personally I'd rather we
identified a few candidates and discussed their relative merits.
Also - we need to ensure that other "non functional" aspects of these
candidates are listed. Items such as "pricing", "support costs",
"hardware requirements", "size of developer community" , "active
development", "high quality", "development language", "licence" etc
are as important in this consideration as specific functional features.
